Infographic: How Do Natural Gas Pipelines Work?- Focus the Nation and Oliver Munday contributed in Energy
It’s Energy month at GOOD, so we’ve teamed up with Portland, Oregon’s Focus the Nation, an organization that’s empowering youth to make smart environmental choices in their communities. This infographic is part of a series exploring our use of energy resources.
Although the gathering line systems for natural gas are similar to crude oil’s, the crude oil pipeline’s reach and mileage in the United States pales in comparison to our natural gas pipeline system, which has more than 350,000 miles of natural gas lines. This does not include the more than two million miles of distribution lines and service pipelines, which run through thousands of cities and towns. While natural gas can sometimes substitute for crude oil, the pipelines can’t reach markets globally. Click on the infographic to learn more about how natural gas is sourced and brought to consumers.
This month, challenge a neighbor to GOOD’s energy smackdown. Find a neighbor with a household of roughly the same square footage and see who can trim their power bill the most. Throughout February, we’ll share ideas and resources for shrinking your household carbon footprint, so join the conversation at good.is/energy.

Infographic: The Future Global Supply of Rare Earth Elements- Column Five contributed in Environment and Energy
It’s Energy month at GOOD, so we’re bringing you infographics that explore our use of energy resources.
Up until the mid-1980s, the United States was the lead global producer of rare earth elements—materials that are used to make the technology that powers everything from laptops to hybrid cars—and have come to define our high-tech lives. Now, America is 100 percent dependent on imports of these elements and China is the primary world supplier. How does China’s domination impact the future global supply of rare earth elements?

Where does gasoline come from? Believe it or not, it’s not just one system that makes it possible for you to fuel up at your local gas station. From gathering pipelines that include oil wells on land and tankers overseas, to hundred-mile-long crude oil trunk lines that transport from gathering systems to refined product lines, oil still doesn’t reach the consumer until storage and distribution terminals are involved. And, in case you’re picturing these pipelines as similar to the water pipes in your home, oil pipes can range in size from 2 to 42 inches in diameter, and are owned and operated by companies that are regulated by federal and state governments. 
In the United States alone, there are roughly 150,000 miles of crude oil pipelines, 55,000 miles of which are trunk lines and 95,000 miles of which are refined product pipelines. Perhaps the most well-known American trunk lines are the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System, and most recently, the Keystone XL Pipeline, which has become a point of contention in our federal government. Click on the infographic above to see how an oil pipeline system works.

Amazing Collection of Infographics, Circa 1875- Adele Peters posted in Design, Graphic Design and Census
Jonathan Soma, the founder of Brooklyn Brainery, discovered these old (and beautiful, and interesting) infographics while exploring the Library of Congress website, and gathered them into one place here. As his site says, these “aren’t your grandfather’s infographics. Probably your great-great-grandfather’s, though.”

Infographic: The World’s Oldest Trees- Adele Peters posted in Environment, Sustainability and Design

A recent study in Science reported that some of the world’s oldest trees—most between 100 to 300 years old—are dying rapidly, in part because of climate change. This infographic (from 2010, but still relevant) shows the location of trees that are even older, and now at risk.

Infographic: How to Recycle Your Christmas Tree- Column Five contributed in Environment, Culture and Christmas
The tinsel is undraped and the ornaments carefully stores away. All that is left is a dry, majestic, 6-foot-tall Douglas Fir in the corner of your living room. Every year, an estimated 30 million of these fragrant, fresh, Christmas trees are sold in the United States, but as much as 10% of them go straight to landfills—never to be recycled.

Interactive Infographic: Is America Falling Behind in Innovation? (Let’s hope not!)
As the election season kicks off, GOOD and MTV want to cut past all the blustering, pontificating, and finger pointing to get to the heart of some of the most important issues that America is facing today. Join us every other Wednesday for the next two months, when we’ll be graphically exploring through interactive infographics what goes behind the nation’s key issues.
In the past few weeks we’ve covered the major issues that have been on the minds of Americans, including energy independence, job creation, student debt, immigration, healthcare, national security, and taxes. 
This week’s issue is our final installment in this series. We want to look ahead to see what’s store for our nation and whether our candidates will be investing in research and technology. As it turns out, innovation has long been a driving force of America’s competitive lead in technology, science, and development. Innovation brings about world-changing ideas, which in turn brings jobs. But is America falling behind in innovation? How do we compare to other nations in the strength of our scientists, engineers, and research investment? Are our children armed with the strong math and science skills to lead a new generation of discovery? Find the answers and more here.
